*Revolution Media - a public benefit*
Date: April 19th 2003
Time: 11am to 11pm
Location: LAFCO Studios 660 Venice Blvd. Venice, CA
Revolution Media celebrates a benefit for the independent musician,
filmmaker, programmer, and artist. The funds raised by this event go to
the performing artists of the day and the Linux Public Broadcasting Network.
The theme: Freedom of the individual from the bonds of corporate greed
The trend of persons around the world to work together as members of
cooperative community projects and then the distribution of these
project's products over the Internet has led to the open source software
industry, the implosion of the record label market and the beginnings of
powerful alternative media systems.
People are making a difference. Ultimately government and the economy
will be transformed by the social micro-trends now underway.
Experience a wonderful time with the Linux Public Broadcasting Network
and the Los Angles Filmmakers Cooperative as we celebrate the
spontaneous arising of new media systems.
Cover charge: $10 at the door.
Performers: Lovesick Lunatics, Maetar, Suzy Williams Band, The Radical
